  • 20 dried apricots
  • 20 whole blanched almonds
  • 30 shelled and unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 50 g/2 oz good quality dark chocolate 70% solids
  • sea salt flakes


  • Crush the nuts roughly
  • In a dry pan toast the nuts for approx 1 minute until just turning golden and aromatic. Watch them like a hawk so they don't burn.
  • Make a slit in each apricot and use your finger to make a little pocket
  • Press in some of the nut mixture to each apricot but reserve some for decorating
  • Press apricots closed as much as possible
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl suspended over gently simmering water but make sure the water does not touch the base of the bowl
  • Dip the cut side of the apricots in the melted chocolate and then sprinkle on some of the reserved toasted nuts and some sea salt flakes
  • These will keep in a sealed container for up to 1 week
